Run up a flag here when they start running. I have an old touring buddy with a boat in Deltaville, and I am going to head down to catch some when they start.

I'm afraid that I know very little about Chesapeake Bay fisheries. I thought Deltaville was more of a Black Drum hot spot? Would you be fishing the mid Bay, or running down to the Bridge/tunnel?

I do know that the Va Beach Striper bite was off the hook good early last January. Loads of 40-50 pound bass were mixed in with Humbacks and Minkes whales about one mile off the beach. The Rudee Inlet charter fleet was catching 200-300 lb Bluefin Tuna on chartreuse "Mojos" they were trolling for Stripers.

Sea water temp is still pretty high, but I'd think the rocks should show at the artificial islands by Thanksgiving and by X-Mas off Cape Henry to Sandbridge.

Yeah. That is just where the boat is. We will go into the Bay & troll.

As our old friend used to say when piloting his pride and joy, "That's dollar bills flyin' out the back!"

I will holler when I head down. Crank the heat!

Deltaville is 90 minutes away if Miss Daisy is driving. Not sure how close you are to D'Ville, but if you are close at all, you need to drive down to Va Beach Sunday and be at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art for the annual House of Blues and Brews festival. 1-5 PM. Cliff and I will be dutifully representing the Forum. Come on down.......

3-3 1/2 Hrs west of VA Bch. depending on the tunnel. About the same from Deltaville.

These guys have some cool older (many wood) boats over there, so we should hook up. Some huge Chris Crafts (twin Detroit Diesels) and some locally made. The one in the Pic has teak cabin that all came from the White House. Trimmed out by the man who owned the boat and was a cabinet/mold maker there up into the 60s. His son was a head who we did a lot of shows with until he passed a year or so ago. Single white oak trunk is the center beam on this boat. 'CHADA' if you see it.
